Welcome To Nevada Lightning Fastpitch Softball

A professionally run softball organization with a personal touch.

Founded in 1990, Nevada Lightning Girls Fastpitch is the premier travel softball organization in Northern Nevada. We strive to provide an environment conducive to the positive athletic, academic and social development of young women.

Nevada Lightning is dedicated to instilling a sense of good sportsmanship as well as creating an environment to enhance player development and inspire a positive self-image in young women ages eight through eighteen.

Our organization is well respected throughout Northern Nevada and Northern California and we are proud of the success and recognition earned by our fine Northern Nevada athletes. Our teams have the opportunity to play against some of the best competition for their age level in local, regional and national tournaments.  We have an outstanding track record of producing college softball players out of our organization.  Our College Alumni list is 200 players strong, and grows every year.

Nevada Lightning is staffed by volunteers dedicated to providing quality coaching with a focus on player development and strong team dynamics. All of our coaches, managers and recruiters are registered with the American Softball Association (ASA) and are cleared through a Protect Youth Sports (PYS) criminal background investigation.

We have year-around access to indoor facilities with a full infield area, batting cages and pitching lanes that allow our players to maintain skill levels and continue athletic development throughout the year, regardless of the weather outside.  We also have a state-of-the art website, an organizational college recruiting coordinator, an organizational marketing coordinator, as well as a board of directors that manages the day-to-day operations of the organization.

With established fundraisers in place, Nevada Lightning provides an opportunity for new and existing teams to raise funds to benefit the organization as well as the individual teams.

Our long history provides a solid foundation for the continued development of the organization as we continue to grow and build for our future.

Testimonial To Our Commitment

FRC SOFTBALL ADDS AN ELITE BALL PLAYER FROM AN ELITE ORGANIZATION

The Feather River College Softball team has received a verbal commitment from one of Nevada’s best middle infielders.  Jaime Romero will be joining the Golden Eagles in 2016 and will immediately contribute and add to the success of the team.  She plays travel ball for Nevada Lightning which is one of the top travel ball programs in the country.  Their organization is filled with great people and is led by Bret Pagni.  “These girls can play ball and everyone in the Lightning organization has treated us with nothing but respect” is what Coach Marco Aragon said when asked about Romero and her travel ball team.
